Adobe Acrobat does not retain desired paper size

In Adobe Acrobat Professional 7 the document has been printed in A4 format and saved.  When the document is reopened it returns to letter format.  Does Acrobat not save printing preferences?  How can we get the document to retain an A4 format without changing the default for all documents?

Thanks

No, Acrobat does not retain printer settings with a document.
With Acrobat 8, you can set a document property to always select the paper source by the page size in your document, but Acrobat 7 does not provide this feature.
